CureFest for Childhood Cancer will be held in-person in Washington, DC on September 25- 26, 2021. There will also be a virtual component this year.
Despite the new hybrid format, our mission has not changed. CureFest will continue to unite the childhood cancer community, increase awareness of childhood cancer and advocate for more funding for research.
Here are some of the features of In-person CureFest: (Please note that all plans are tentative and many details will be finalized over the summer.)
Saturday, September 25 from 5 PM to 9:15 PM at Freedom Plaza
Sunday, September 26 from 11 AM to approximately 1 PM (Ending time is TBD)
Custom CureFest App
Participants will be interconnected virtually through an interactive, custom app that will count the group’s steps for the day. Based on the number of participants, we will have a group goal for steps taken on September 25 and 26. There will also be unique ways for families to share updates and words of encouragement with other families.
Video Tribute for fighters, survivors and angels
This year, families will have the opportunity to honor their children by submitting a photo. These images will be edited into a virtual tribute video that will be shared on social media on September 26 and beyond.
CureFest LiveStream (tentative)
CureFest program with speakers and performers will be tentatively streamed on September 26, 2021 prior to the One Voice community walks.
CureFest Beads and Medals
Individuals will have the opportunity to purchase honor beads and medals for survivors, fighters, siblings, parents and advocates.
In addition, the CureFest Team is working on other enhancements to this year's event. We will post details throughout the summer.
